romney both very quick to talk about these job numbers. president obama saying, you know, this -- we still have got a way to go, but it proves we are going in the right direction and we can't go back to the policies of the past. >> obama: today's news certainly is not an excuse to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has become too far to turn back now. >> bill: indeed. the president in a campaign event this california talked moyer about these numbers. >> obama: the unemployment rate has fallen down to 7.8% the lowest since i took office. [ cheers ] >> bill: the president can take credit for 4.3 million jobs created in this country since february 2010, 4.1 million jobs were lost in the last year of the bush presidency so president obama as in fact made up for all of the jobs lost under george w. bush -- made up for all of the jobs losted under president bush and adds jobs on top of that. there is no doubt about it that the president can take credit for creating jobs where mitt romney never did. the headline in

. obama would like to have spending end up at 23%. romney and ryan both want it down at 20%. so there's a clear difference, and they all agree on where it should go. what gets interesting is as you dig into the detail of what gets cut, and you'll see some very, i think, fascinating differences among these guys. so on social security, as you heard president obama say in the last debate, the three guys are actually in the same place. they want to spend the same amount on social security in the next ten years. when you get to medicare, romney and ryan are in the same place, but romney actually a as you also heard him say, wants to repeal the $716 billion. it's actually $900 billion of cuts. he would spend more on medicare than ryan or obama. and then you have obamacare. >> let me ask you really quickly. if anybody has heard, let me know. has mitt romney said what he wants to do with the $716 billion? >> essentially it would be used to get his spending down to that 20% level because you're going to see in a minute, he has a bunch of other places he wants to spend money. >> spend the $716

legislation with the input of both parties. >> governor romney says this has to be done in a bipartisan basis. this is a bipartisan idea. this was a republican idea. governor romney at the beginning of this debate broke and said, what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might be giving advice to republicans in congress about how to cooperate. but the fact of the matter is, we used the same advisers and they say it's the same plan. when governor romney talks about this board, for example, unelected board that we have created, what this is is a group of health care expert, doctors, et cetera, to figure out how can we reduce the cost of care in the system overall? because there are two ways of dealing with our health care crisis. one is to simply leave a whole bunch of people uninsured and let them fend for themselves, to let businesses figure out how long they can continue to pay premiums until they finally give up and the workers are no longer getting insured. and that's been the trend line. or, alternatively, we can
